Senior editor Capt. Patrick Sciacca recently returned from a trip to Volvo Penta‚Äôs Göteborg, Sweden, test facility where he viewed a host of new diesel offerings from 160 hp to 575 hp. While the engines looked good at the unveiling, they were even more impressive during on-the-water testing. Seen here is the 45-foot, 39,000-pound charter boat Tuna Clipper, which made a speedy 29-knots thanks to twin 500-hp D9 diesel inboards. She even managed to pull six water-skiers. Stay tuned for the full story in a future issue of PMY.
